High-pressure water is used to clean the machines. To remove dirt from floors and walls, wash cars, unclog pipes, clean the pool, and even clean the garden furniture with them is a cinch. They are designed for outdoor use and save water and detergent by using up to eight times less water than a hose. Models with varying output powers are available, as are water projectors with varying pressures and flows.
Electric, gas, or battery-powered motors are all options. Gasoline-powered tools are more powerful than electric-powered tools, and professionals should use only gasoline-powered tools. Some of these models include a water heater resistance, making cleaning easier. It is possible to use cordless high pressure cleaners to draw water directly from a tap or from any of the previously mentioned containers (e.g., buckets, jerrycans, or bottles).
Before Making A Choice Between Models, Keep In Mind The Following:
It will take us between 10, 20, 40, and 60 minutes to finish using the machine at full power. Depending on the duration, it can be applied to small or large surfaces. Due to their professional nature, gasoline pressure washers have the ability to be used continuously for longer periods of time without the need to refuel. Battery-powered options are an option if an electrical outlet is not available where we need to clean and we do not want to use a generator. These, however, have less power.
Pressure and power increase as dirt removal difficulty increases.
As a result, it’s critical to consider the following pressure washer characteristics:
1.300 to 3,000 watt pressure washers are the most common.
A higher level of use necessitates a higher pressure of water. Bars are the units of measurement (1 bar equals 1 kilo of pressure per cm 2 ).
The Recommended Pressure Ranges From: To: Depending On How We Intend To Use It:
A few times a year: cleaning of bicycles, outdoor furniture, and balconies (between 100 and 110 bars).
Moderate use: up to 30 m2 of outdoor vehicles, walls, or floors – 110 to 120 bars.
Usage: facades, swimming pools, roofs, and outdoor floors up to 40 square metres – 120 to 140 bars on average
Utilization in high-traffic areas: up to 60 m2 of facade and outdoor floor space; up to 180 bars.
– Flow: the rate at which water moves through the hose. A liter-per-hour flow rate is used to quantify this.
Lengths range from 2 to 12 metres. Longer hose models allow you to work independently without moving the machine. To make use and storage easier, a hose collector should be built into the machine.
An electric vehicle requires a plug, while a gasoline-powered vehicle offers greater autonomy.
There Are Also Battery-Powered Models That Are Small And Portable.
Electric motors with water cooling and induction motors have a longer lifespan.
What Is The Purpose Of The Pressure Washer?
This is a step-by-step guide for starting a high-pressure cleaner:
If we’re using detergent, we’ll start with the load. The amount of detergent needed varies from one model to the next depending on the size of the machine. We have a variety of detergents, each with a specific purpose, as well as a Sterwins universal detergent.
Connect the water tap to the pressure washer. The irrigation hose connector on the majority of them is 34″. To start using the water, turn on the water valve.
After filling up the suction pipe and pump reservoir to capacity, squeeze the pressure washer trigger to release water until it spits it out.
Turn the appliance on by plugging it into an electrical outlet and allowing it to warm up.
Pull the lever on the machine to start it.
When working, be mindful of your level of stress.
To get rid of tough dirt, get the nozzle closer to the surface.
Consider the machine’s maximum non-stop operation time, which varies based on its power. Do not go over this limit to avoid damaging your engine by allowing it to overheat.
Allow the engine to rest for at least 20 minutes after it stops.
When using a high-pressure machine, cold water is the norm; however, some models can handle hot water up to 40oC.
Hot water has a greater degreasing power than cold water, but experts advise against using too much hot water because it can damage certain components (such as valves, gaskets, and seals), and instead recommend using a special detergent to boost the anti-grease power of cold water.
Suggestions For Care And Maintenance
Following the manufacturer’s instructions will ensure that the machine lasts as long as possible and functions properly.
Before using the machine, fill it up to the brim with water.
It’s critical to thoroughly drain the machine and the hose after each use.
Drain the water from the hose connectors and re-insert them.
Using vaseline or grease to lubricate the gum connectors on a regular basis.
In hard water areas, some models come with a needle to clean the nozzle of limescale.
Some of the newest pressure washer models come equipped with mobile applications that can assist us in determining the best pressure for the cleaning task at hand, as well as provide us with tips on how to use the machine.
